Subject: [CAJON] Pre-48 clearance markings
One operationally relevant detail we can use on our models is an
indication of how close we can leave a car without fouling the
diverging route. Since 1948 on the Santa Fe derails and clearance
indicators (see the system standards for distances) have been painted
orange. I have recently discovered from a copy of the standard sign
diagram that prior to 10-48, the color for clearance markers and
derails was white.
A neat and useful detail.
